Delbert McClinton: “Let’s Get Down Like We Used To”

Posted by on Jul 23, 2019

With more than six decades of experience under his belt, it’s no easy task to sum up Delbert McClinton‘s accomplishments. The three-time Grammy winner has toured with The Beatles, supported Howlin’ Wolf and Bo Diddley, has had his tunes covered by Garth Brooks, Waylon Jennings, Bonnie Raitt, and Buddy Guy and has continued to earn well-deserved praise, everywhere from Rolling Stone to Lyle Lovett.

This inherently Texan songwriter and so-called “Godfather of Americana” had a ball writing and recording the newest album alongside his backing band Self-Made Men + Dana, who provide an essential backdrop of horns, fiddle, accordion, and everything else you’d want behind McClinton’s raspy vocals. Tall, Dark, & Handsome is a huge achievement in Texas blues and roots music, and before you catch Delbert on the road, enjoy the first single out of these fourteen new tunes, “Let’s Get Down Like We Used To”!
